Happy Flip a Coin Day!

Yep – June 1st is Flip a Coin Day.  And we’re needing a little variety in our schooling, so we’ve decided to focus on random holidays this month…

To celebrate, we flipped a penny 10 times and discussed statistical probabilities… :)  Actually, we spent more time discussing the concept of “heads” and “tails.”  And deciding what color of ladybugs we wanted to put on our tally sheets.

Esmé decided to stop at 9 tosses, which is just as well since we didn’t want to end up with a tie between heads or tails or anything.  Here’s her final tally sheet:
